'Tabiff Reform" was the battle cry
of the democracy four years ago. It
wouldn't work again, like it did then,
and something else must, of course, be
used. The voters are alert this time and
are beginning to see quite through what
parties say, to find what is meant back
of the words. A change of battle cry

spirit of prophecy we have right here,

cast the life of McKinlet, long or short,
and see him laid away in his grave with

The keynote of the republican cam
paign this year will be sounded from
time to time at Canton. That Ohio
town will be the republican Mecca, and
McKinley the republican prophet. He
is the chosen leader. The pilgrimages
to Canton have begun, and McKinley
has already spoken to his neighbors, to
the workingmen from Niles, to n large
delegation from West Virginia, and to
crowds gathered from other states, and
from different sections of his own state.
The republicans who have called upon
McKinley have one great issue, and he
has represented that issue for years.
They go to Canton shouting for protec
tion, and McKinley has talked to them
about protection. "We want to get
back to that policy which will give to us
work and wages," says McKinley, and
republicans everywhere agree with him.
They have had a sad experience since
the abandonment of that policy repre
sented by McKinley, and they want to
get back to it. State after state in
structed their delegates for McKinley
because he represented this policy of
work and wages under protection, and
it will be useless for any faction of the
republican party to try to put any other
issue ahead of this one. Republicans
want sound money now as they always
have, but their first and chief -consideration
is for the policy of protection.
They can trust the republican party and
a republican president for the rest of
the platform, but they are going into
the campaign to fight the democrats on
the one great policy which the demo
crats abolished to bring ruin on the
Judge Horace Clark of Mattoon well
add in an interview: "The name of Mc
Kinley is a platform in itself." It was
so before the convention, and it will re

crats cannot divert the republicans from
this issue. The people will listen to the
keynotes sounded from Canton, and
they will be, as they have been, for pro
tection to American industries. Inter

This is right if the correspondent re

sorry to admit that a few of these eva

ery la the Camp" A Bold Challenge.
While the Democratic party has been
devoting so much earnest attention to
the nomination of a Republican candi
date for the presidency, it must not for
a moment be assumed that its own af
fairs are being neglected. In discussing
the Republican outlook the Democrats
are conducting their own campaign.
But there has been a lack of reciprocity
on the Republican side, which seems to
be so enveloped in its own concerns that
no time or space can be spared for dis
cussing the possibilities of its political
It is well known that the Gorman
tariff is not satisfactory to "the rank
and file" of the Democratic party. The
Wilson bill was more to their liking.
But it was amended in some COO partic
ulars, under the guidance of certain
Democratic senators, till President
Cleveland admitted that "there are pro
visions in this bill which are not in
line with honest tariff reform." So
strongly did he feel, in fact, that he be
came "more settled than ever iu the de
termination to allow the bill to become
a law without my (his) signature."
Mr. Cleveland, however, never sur
rendered all hop-.; of acquiring a perfect
tariff from the free trade standpoint.
He said: "I cannot be mistaken as to
the necessity of free raw materials as
the foundation of logical and sensible
tariff reform. " In only oue industry,
that of wool manufacture, has free raw
material been granted to the American
people. The result has hardly been sat
isfactory to the manufacturers, perhaps,
because they did not also secure free
coal and free iron. It is true that the
furniture manufacturers have free lum
ber, but as they are not capturing any
large share of the markets of the world,
they possibly need free glue, free nails,
free screws and free varnish. Mr. Cleve
land appreciates these points. He further
has hopes of providing more free raw
materials that "would carry to every
humble home in the laud the blessings
of increased comfort and cheaper liv
ing." Bad as the Gorman tariff is he
regards it as "not only a barrier against
the return of mad protection, but it fur
nishes a vantage ground from which
must be waged further aggressive opera
tions against protected monopoly and
What clearer ring, what plainer chal
lenge could be given to the friends of
protection? When Mr. Cleveland refused
to attach his signature to the Wilson
bill with its 000 attachments, though
regarding it as "a vantage ground from
which must be waged f urtlier aggressive
operations," he publicly proclaimed,
through the medium of Hon. T. C.
Catchings, as follows:
"I take my place with the rank and
filo of the Democratic party who believe
in tariff reform and who know what it
is, who refuse to accept the results of
this bill as the close of the war, who are
not blinded to the fact that the livery
of Democratic tariff reform has been
stolen and worn in the service of Re
publican protection, and who have
marked the places where the deadly
blight of treason has blasted the coun
sels of the brave iu their hour of might. ' '
The tariff reform party disowns tho
existing law except as "a vantage
ground from which must be waged
further aggressive operations," Their
"livery has been stolen. " It must be re
covered from the Republican protection
ists. Secretary Morton must mix up his
strongest insecticides to exterminate
the rot and mildew iu the Democratic
party caused by "the deadly blight of
treason." Even now the president and
his cohort. Professor Wilson, are gird
ing up their loins for the fray and re
viving the blasted counsels of the brave
in their hour of weakness. Come on,
protectionists! Here is the challenge of
the Democratic president;

have fought bravely and well for tariff

tinue the struggle" while "boldly chal
lenging to open warfare?" To do this
would be ' 'the deadly blight of treason. ' '

GENERAL HARRISON'S LAST MESSAGE
Cleveland's Klectlea and IU
Tfsilaw Bieeaeaed Testtasaay te the
Benedts of Protection A Matter ef Prin
ciple. Net Sehedale.
It was aft-'T Grover Cleveland had
been elected and congress had assembled
in the sessioa which was to expire with
the inauguration of a Democratic presi
dent that General Harrison iu his last
message bore testimony to the benefits
of the protective system. On Dec. 6,
IS1.):.', he said:
"There never has been a time in our
history when work was so abundant or
when wages were as high, whether
measured by the currency in which they
arc- paid or by their power to supply the
necessaries and comforts of life. If any
believe that wages or prices, the returns
for honest toil, are inadequate, they
should not fail to remember that there
is no other country in the world where
the conditions that seem to them hard
would not be accepted as highly pros
perous. The English agriculturist would
be glad to exchange the returns of his
labor for those of the American farmer
and the Manchester workmen their
wages for those of their fellows at Fall
Then, with a prophecy born of in
spiration, Mr. Harrison discussed the
result of the election which was to re
tire the Republican party from power.
"That election," he said, "must be
accepted as having introduced a new
policy. We must assume that the pres
ent tariff, constructed upon the lines of
protection, is to be repealed, and that
there is to be substituted for it a tariff
law constructed solely with reference to
revenue; that no duty i3 to be higher
because the increase will keep open an
American mill or keep up the wages of
an American workman, but that in ev
ery case such a rate of duty is to be im
posed as will bring to the treasury oi
the United States the largest returns ol
revenue. The contention lies not be
tween schedule, but between principle.
"When a pyateni of customs duties
can be framed that well set the idle
wheels aud looms of Europe iu motion
and crowd our warehouses with foreign
made goods, cud at the same time keep
our own mills busy; that will give us
an increased participation iu the 'mar
kets of the world' of greater value than
the home market will surrender; that
will give increased work to foreign
workmen upon products to be consumed
by our people without diminishing the
amount of work to be done here; tha.
will enable the American manufacture!
to pay bis workmen from 50 to 100 pet
cent more in wages than is paid in the
foreign mill and yet to compete in out
market and in foreign markets with the
foreign producer; that will further re
duce the cost of articles of wear and
food without reducing the wages ol
those who produce them ; that can be
celebrated, after its effects have been
realized, as its expectation has been, in
European as well as American cities,
the authors and promoters of it will be
entitled to the highest praise. We have
hod in our history several experiences oi
the contrasted efforts of a revenue and
protective tariff; but this generation has
not felt them, and the experience of one
generation is not highly instructive tc
the next. The friends of the protective
system, with undiminished confidence
in the principles they have advocated,
will await the results of the new experi
ment" What the results of "the new experi
ment" have teen every one knows.
Failing revenues, imports exceeding ex
ports, gold disappearing from the re
serve, a constantly recurring deficiency,
repeated increases of the national debt,
general depression, busiuess'uncertainty,
universal bankruptcy, labor unemploy

unparalleled in the history of a great

Twin Shaft Disaster Keealls tha rate 1
WILKE8BA3BE, June 80. It is almost
a settled faet that of the small army oi
men which entered the ill-fated Twin
shaft at Pitteton on Saturday night not
on survives. Not only is every ap
proach to their dark tomb barricaded by
enormous masses of rock and debris,
but iris known that in the mine there
is a large quantity of water, which n
increasing in volume every minute.
Thus the chances of recovering theii
bodies are more remote than ever.
Prominent officials say that weeks oz
months more may be consumed in
clearing away the fallen coal in order tc
reach the bodies. Mine superintendents
of great experience think that the men
have met the same fate as the miners in
the No. S slope of the Susquehanna
Coal company in December. 1885. These
men were eaught in a "rush" of culm
and water from the surface. Thedx
bodies were buried under a mountain oi
coal" refuse. Three hundred men
labored for more than two weeks to res
cue them, but the more debris they took
out, the more rushed in from the sur
face opening. As the task was a hope
lees one, it was finally abandoned and
the portion of the mint where the sser.
died was closed up.

COCKRKLL TALKS OF BLAND.
aUssearl Senator Believes a Belt Is Un
likely nt Chicago.
Chicago, Juue 30. Senator Cockrell
of Missouri was among yesterday's ar
rivals. He is a delegate to the national
Democratic convention and is here for
the purpose of attending tho Democratic
"I am, of course, for Mr. Blaud," he
said, "and our delegation are instructed
for him, but if we cannot get him, we
shall get some other man who is sound
on the currency question and Missouri
will support him at the polls. Mr. Bland
is a safe, practical man, aud, if elected,
would be entirely reliable as a president.
There can be no doubts on that score."
The senator thinks the fiuancial ques
tion will be made the paramount issue
hi the platform and that there will be a
3 mare declaration for the mintage of
ter on terms of equality with gold at
the ratio of 10 to 1, and without await
ing the co-operation of other nations.
He laughs at Mr. Whitney's suggestion
of a compromise, and says it will not be
entertained. He does not believe an
unequivocal silver plank will drive
many eastern men out of the party,
and argues that on the contrary it will
bring many votes to the party that can
not be caught in any othor way.
"We shall gaiu immensely in the
West." he said, "and we shall not lose
in the east. The people have not yet
pome to a full realization of the strength
Bf the silver movement. It will sweep
the country at the polls as it has swept
the Democratic party at the primaries."
Senator Cookrell does not consider
tbt there is any danger of a bolt by the
New York or other eastern delegates.

CONFERENCE OF FREE SILVER MEN.
Leaders Will Map Oat Plans Far the Na
Chicago, June 80. Commencing to
day meetings of the Democratic silver
forces under the auspices of the bime
tallic national committee will probably
be held daily until the beginning of the
convention and possibly while the con
vention continues, if there appears to be
occasion ior tnem. Tne general pur
pose of the meetings is to exercise a
supervisory care over the interests of
the silver cause in the Democratic con
vention. The conference was first de
cided upon two months ago, wheu the
silver people were not so sure of being
able to control the convention as they
now are and when they considered it
possible that it would ba noccssary for
protection of their interests to keep an
eye upon the proceedings of the
national Democratic committee. It was
considered important at that time that
the silver people should have such a
perfect understanding that there would
be no doubtful moves in the convention
or elsewhere. Now they profess to
feel so sure of their gronnd that they do
not longer feel the necessity for such
caution. Among the matters to which
they do propose to give their attention
are the contests for seats in the conven
tion made by silver men and the selec
tion of a temporary chairman of tho
convention and. possibly, later to the
preparation of a platform, and, if neces
sary, the selection of candidates.
Senator Jones of Arkansas, who will
be a prominent figure in these meetings,
said that the first work of tho confer
ence would be to eoufer with the sub
committee of the Democratic national
committee as to the selection of a tem
porary chairman and as to contests if
necessary. He said there was no ap
prehension that the national committee
would not be disposed to deal fairly with
the silver majority, but that it bad been
thought best to have an understanding.
Senator Jones also stated that he had
doubted whether, under the circum
stances, the contests wnich had threat
ened from Texas, Colorado and Nebras
ka, would materialize, now that it was
so evident that the stiver men would
have an unquestioned majority.
